Achieving Iterative Redesign: Online Content's Only Constant Is Change

#UAD3 Usability, Accessibility and Design Track

102 C, Frontier Airlines Center


The online content management approach of iterative redesign is earning its keep at Emory University. Externally, we find this approach allows us to keep pace with demographic expectations and online trends while also increasing the website's effectiveness as a marketing tool. Internally, it allows us to innovate within the university's existing online framework while also respecting the institutional tolerance for change. This presentation outlines the steps we take, including data analysis and content review, and demonstrates the process from start to finish to start again.
